I'm not sure if there is a term for it, but my knee is loose. I notice people being told not to pinch at the knee and keep those heels down. Well my heels stay down no problem, its almost natural, but maybe a bit too far. And my right knee continually loses contact with the horse/saddle.
So is this just a strength issue? My ankle no longer hurts. I think it had something to do with it not being warmed up, and my muscle backfired. But now my knee just won't stay put. My other leg is fine.
Oh, btw for those interested, my new instructor is amazing! So understanding and helpful and wants to start me off slowly. She had me on a lunge! And the horse I'm on is great. She's not a typical school horse, she is very well trained and responds to light cues. I barely have to squeeze to get her to go. And to stop, I sink back and maybe give a teensy half halt! Love it!
